Radiohead - OK Computer ~ 1996 - obvious, but obvious for a reason.

Pixies - Doolittle - ~ 1989 - pre-invention of grunge.

The Twilight Sad - 14 Autumns and 13 Winters (or something v similar to it) ~ 2008. Immense album, dark, brooding, angry, sad, intense, bittersweet, sometimes just bitter, beautiful.

Noah and the Whale - First Days of Spring ~ 2009. Stunningly sad breakup album, with one very very happy song in the middle.

Eels - Electroshock Blues ~ 1995. Tale of mental breakdown, life on a mental ward, rehabilitation and hope for the future. Exquisite album.

Bryan Adams - Reckless ~ 1985. Proper proper pub rock, not a bad song on the album, great production, not too 80s, timeless.

Muse - Absolution ~ 2003. How to mix metal with classical piano concertos, pomp rock and opera. It just shows that nothing is impossible.

Pink Floyd - The obvious one is The Wall, for a very good reason. And Dark Side of the Moon didn't sell billions by accident. But the epic one for me would be The Final Cut. The music isn't necessarily as expansive or cutting edge as some of the other albums, and it lacks a killer 'single' like Another Brick in the Wall or Money or Time or Comfortably Numb, but it's Waters at his utmost savage, lyrical best, very satirical, very bitter, very sarcastic, very black humoured and so very touching at times. Everyone should hear it once at least - it's one way of getting in touch with the early 80s and all the issues faced then, not least of all about the threat of nuclear war and the anger over the Falklands.

I'm not quoting any Beatles or Stones albums, as for every 5 amazing songs you get 4 or 5 duff ones. Even the White Album, which has at least 7 or 8 classics on there has about 5 or 6 pretty average songs. Dylan's blond on blond album is pretty bloody good, but I'm just not a big enough fan to put in this list.

Status Quo - Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon - Little rock, bit of blues, a mixyblob - Before the cheese, a superb album, with great songs from start to end. 70's
Royksopp - The Understanding - Electronic sort of stuff - Another cracker, with atmospheric, weird tunes, with their greatest ditty right in the middle, 'What Else is There?'. Naughties.
Deep Purple - Made in Japan - Rock - Along with Quesn Live at Wembley, one of the greatest live albums on this planet. 70's
Queen - Live at Wembley - Rock, glam rock, soft rock - Just stunning. The DVD with the visual performance is something else as well. '86
Greydon Square - The Compton Effect - Rap/hipiddyhoppidy - Despite not being a fan of rap, it tends to be bare cause I have no idea what they are saying. This chap has something to say, and is eloquent. Great album in a trilogy. Naughties.
The Undertones - Cher O'Bowlies - pop rock? - Generation album by the wobbly voiced one, and his band. 70's
Queen - At the Beeb - Fantasy Rock? - Parton a series the BBC did back in the day. 70's

Years are all guesses, except for Live at Wembley! I could list more! smile genres are hard. I take no notice of them, to be honest,

No Other by Gene Clark, former frontman with The Byrds. I could pick any of his albums, but this is the masterpiece.

An absolute classic by a forgotten genius.


Title track, No Other

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YULwbhga18



This track, From a Silver Phial, was heavily plagiarised by Noel Gallagher.

On a slighly different tact -

Steve Reich - Music for 18 Musicians.

Massively influential but more importantly also beautiful, subtle and magical. Loose yourself in it. Probably the ultimate example of minimalism and a stunning lesson how less can be more.

The Cult ~ Love ~ 1985 ~ Worth hearing for Billy Duffy's riffs alone. music

David Sylvian ~ Gone to Earth ~ 1986 ~ Great musicians playing dark, atmospheric & thought provoking music.

Joni Mitchell ~ Hejira ~ 1976 ~ One of the greatest singer / songwriters on top form.

Prince ~ Sign of the Times ~ 1987 ~ Prince at his peak. Mesmerising at the time and still incredible now.
